The bispectral index, a new processed electroencephalographic parameter which may give information on depth of anaesthesia, was used in 58 patients undergoing outpatient gynaecological surgery in order to study if the addition of bispectral index monitoring to standard clinical monitoring could improve the titration of target propofol concentration when using effect-site target-controlled propofol infusion for sedation. In Group 1 (n = 30), the bispectral index was recorded but the anaesthetist… CONTINUE READING
